ooh, I’m super interested in the protection spells book; thank you for putting it on my radar! I really want to add to my witchy library and get information from sources other than witch tumblr, lol.
I also requested Mexican Gothic immediately after reading your post because I’ve been interested in it but did not know it was on NG.
I hope you enjoy all these books!
You’re welcome! Arin Murphy-Hiscock probably has some of my favorite witchcraft-related books I’ve found so far!
Thank you, dear, happy reading! <3
That was a haul!!
Wow that’s a lot of books! ? Some great picks. I’m curious about Sawkill Girls. I’ve heard such mixed things.
I read Sawkill Girls as an eARC a long while back and really loved it! It’s very unique and a little odd but I definitely recommend it. 😀
BUNNICULA! Sometimes I feel like I imagined those books because no one every knows what I’m talking about when I mention them, lol.
I see so many interesting things on here!
Thanks, lovely! ?
Hell yes, what a haul. So much goodness. Enjoy 🙂
Haha thank you!
Amazing haul! I love Book Outlet. I haven’t really gotten any books from them in probably over a year. I’ve been trying to limit my buying since I already have so many books that I haven’t read, haha.
Thank you! Oh, I feel you! I used to order from them all the time and this was my first time in about a year, too, and it was so fun to pick out a big haul of books but definitely reminded me of why it has to be a rare occasion. ?
[…] from now on. I got inspiration from Ali from Our Book Boyfriends as well as Destiny from Howling Libraries. I’ve been trying to figure out the best way to format these posts and I think I have found […]
Oooohhh I’m so jealous! I wish we had Book Outlet in Aus ?
I hope you enjoyed your Switch! They look so fun!
I bought Sawkill Girls recently too and it looks so pretty on my shelf ?
I wish you did, too! I keep hoping someday they’ll expand their shipping so that more people can get the good deals we get in US/CA. 🙁
Would be so good! Although my bank account wouldn’t be so grateful because I’d use it as an excuse to constantly buy books ?
